  • Best Swiss-card clone I've seen

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Ballpoint pen is easy to write with
    - Scissors are quite sharp
    - My goodness it's cheap!
    - Slightly smaller than a credit card (lengthwise)

    Cons:

    - edge of knife is not very well defined; you could end up using the wrong edge
    - knife blade wobbles a bit in the plastic handle
    - a bit hard to see the ruler markings unless you tilt it against the light
    - it's a bit thick, 5 times thicker than a card, but i guess anything thinner will compromise the build quality even more.

    OtherThoughts:

    - If your pen doesn't seem to work after some mad scribbling (as was the case with mine), light a match and put the ball point over (but not touching) the flame.
    - You'd probably want make the knife edge more pronounced/sharper. And don't use it for heavy-duty jobs
    - Not sure if I'll be putting that ear-pick into my ear though ;)
    - Another thing about the knife: it slides out a bit too easily compared to the other tools. this may/may not be a problem depending on how you carry it.

    Bottomline:

    Not something to pack in your carry-on; leave it for your check-in luggage. Great alternative to the regular swiss army pocket knife
